Jay Chou

Singer Jay Chou's relationship with 18-year-old Hannah Quinlivan came to light when the pair was photographed touring Europe together earlier in August.

Although both parties have since denied rumours of romance, Jay had recently hinted on his intentions to get hitched. Similarly, Hannah had reportedly taken to Christianity and had been baptised in a bid to please Jay's mother, who was a staunch believer of the faith.

It was reported yesterday that a photo of Jay and his mother strolling along the streets of Harajuku, Tokyo, had surfaced on the Internet. In the picture that was believed to be uploaded by a netizen, only the back view of Jay and his mother could be seen.

"How much of a coincidence will it be to bump into Mrs. Chou, Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan at Harajuku at the same time. I was afraid that Jay would be angry, so I did not ask for a photo," the netizen wrote.

The netizen also added that Jay had kept his distance from Hannah and walked close to his mother.

"Aren't they (Hannah and Jay) tired of not being able to walk together?" responded a fellow Internet user.

Coincidentally, it was also a photograph of Jay Chou and former-lover Patty Hou in Japan six years ago that revealed the romance between the two.

When asked about the Tokyo trip, Hannah's manager admitted that she had indeed gone on a trip.

"It was just a bunch of friends going for a holiday," her manager said.

On the other hand, Jay's recording company, JVR Music has refused to respond on the photo that had surfaced.
